Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said during a recent meeting with UN diplomats that he was “shocked to hear that UNESCO adopted a decision denying any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount, our holiest site.”
He expressed disbelief that “anyone, let alone an organization tasked with preserving history, could deny this link which spans thousands of years.”
Netanyahu offered to personally host a lecture at his office on Jewish history for local UN staff.
“The seminar will be given by a leading scholar of Jewish history and will be free to all UN staff and diplomats, including of countries which voted for this outrageous decision.”
Nickolay Mladenov, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, rejected Netanyahu’s offer.
